Respected Teachers and my dear friends,
Today I am going to talk about Easter.
Easter is a Christian festival that celebrates the rebirth of Jesus Christ. Some people think that the term, “Easter”, originates from a Pagan goddess named Eostre. Records show that this festival was celebrated since the 2nd century. The season of Easter lasts for six weeks and begins sometime in March or April. Though the date of Easter is not fixed every year, it occurs on a Sunday. Sunday is symbolic because it was the day that Jesus rose from the dead. Today, the meaning of Easter, for millions of Christians, is that of honoring and recognizing Jesus Christ’s resurrection from the dead Christians around the globe hold this festival in high regard.
People fast during this time and incorporate more spiritual habits into their daily routines. Many of the customary practices of Easter don’t, actually, have anything to do with the occasion itself. However, children participate in Easter egg hunts and are given tons of candy. Eggs are decorated using paint, pens, and other adornments. Earlier, chicken eggs were dyed, for this festival. But modern traditions include eggs that are made of chocolate or plastic, which are filled with candies. The Easter bunny is a figure from folklore, which carries a basket of colored eggs. On the night before Easter, the bunny is said to hide the basket in the homes of children, so that they may find it on the day of Easter. Ideally, the Easter bunny is a judge of character, as only those children, who have been nice, receive gifts on Easter. The celebration of Easter is different in all cultures. Some communities have elaborated celebrations such as processions, whereas others involve attending mass and singing songs. The day will also witness lavish feasts and a variety of traditional dishes being cooked and served.
Easter truly encapsulates and celebrates the most important part of Jesus Christ Life. It’s a reminder about the sufferings he underwent for humanity, the prize he paid for it, and his resurrection.
